Buildings -- whether public or private -- make up for around 40% of the total amount of energy consumed in the EU. The European Commission acknowledges this, saying in its energy efficiency plan last year that "the greatest energy savings potential lies in buildings". According to the EU executive, renovating buildings could generate savings of up to €1,000 per household each year and create up to 2 million jobs.
The Energy Efficiency Directive, a new law taking shape at the moment, is to become the most important instrument for revamping the existing building stock.
